An orthopaedic and trauma surgeon, specialising in the treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis, fractures, as well as ligamentary lesions of the knee has recently been recommended to knowitall.ch. Dr. John McManus holds the post of consultant surgeon and joint head of the department of orthopaedic and trauma surgery at the Nyon Hospital (Groupement Hospitalier de l'Ouest Lémanique - GHOL) since June this year.

Dr. McManus completed his undergraduate studies at Queen’s University Belfast, in the United Kingdom, obtaining his medical degree in 2007, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Human Anatomy with first class honours, followed by a Masters in Applied Biomechanics at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

Following two years as a junior doctor at the university hospitals in Belfast, Dr. McManus began his training in orthopaedics and trauma surgery at CHUV — Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois in 2009, caring for patients with traumatic and degenerative conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

After two years as chief resident at the Riviera Chablais Hospital, with a large experience in general orthopaedics and trauma surgery, he returned to CHUV where he specialised in the care of patients with knee and hip osteoarthritis, as well as complications after prosthetic surgery. He also has specialised training for the care of patients with ligamentary or meniscal lesions of the knee. He also has a wide experience in general orthopaedic and trauma surgery.

A recent patient, Mark W., told knowitall.ch, “John made a complex operation easy to understand, he is affable and made time to answer any questions. He also went out of his way to ensure the best possible facilities and comfort post operation. My follow-up meetings have all been positive and thanks to him I’ll hopefully be back on the slopes soon.”

Dr. John McManus told knowitall.ch, "I am bilingual now, but as a native English-speaker, I know how difficult it can be to understand complex subjects while learning a foreign language. For this reason, I want to reach out to the English-speaking community and offer appointments in English, as well as French.
At the hospital in Nyon we have an excellent team, including Dr Hermenjat, Dr Poglia and Dr Sadowski, and together we provide world-class care for patients with osteoarthritis, injuries or other orthopaedic problems. We also have excellent private facilities available for those with private and semi-private insurance."


Dr John McManus’ consulting rooms are on the first floor of the Hospital in Nyon, above the ER. You can request an appointment directly or on the advice of your family doctor.
